My major issue is how comfortable the staff became with bunching up down low in the defensive zone. It seemed like very little thought and practice went into what comes next when the team actually gets the puck.
We're still too passive. We're not standing up the opposing team at the blueline. Defense starts in the neutral zone. Force the opposing team to dump the puck instead of allowing them to skate it in.
